"Meredith Bean McMath flourishes at a time when only one in five U.S. plays have a female playwright. - Diane Helentjaris, Survival Secrets of a Southern Woman Playwright
"My evocative conversation with Meredith reminded me of the adage given to actors using the Acting Stanislavski method. It states that, while performing, they should listen and respond, not just memorize their lines and speak from rote. Meredith lives Method Acting in a real-life expressive discourse..." - Nancy Wyatt on Run Rabbit Run Theatre, My Persuasive Presentations
